Have you seen those Groupon deals for dentistry? Unfortunately, they may be illegal and are definitely unethical. They are being look at by the American Dental Association. Since the fees are being split by the dentist and Groupon it may violate dentistry’s no fee splitting rules. Oregon has already banned Groupon deals for dentists and chiropractors, with more states to follow! I would think twice before signing up for a deal!
